hi,everyone. new to slrs and ready to learn.

hi everyone. just got my first dslr. I bought a used pentax k10d with the 18-55 DA kit lens and manual 2.8 chinar 135mm lens and i'm very impressed by this camera. i bought this older camera so i could learn, and hopefully in a year or so i can move to a newer camera after i know what i'm doing. i hope i can learn from you guys.

thanks

vimeto

Welcome to the forums. I think it was a great idea to pick up a bargain K10D to see how you like SLR photography.

welcome to the world of dslr! i own a k100d so a grade below yours but I remember when I first got it, how great it made me feel when I took piccies. they make me feel like i could never go back to a normal point and shoot! enjoy your new camera!

It is a great camera and it holds its own with image quality, if you get a weather resistant lens you can even shoot in the rain with it. It's a shame to have only taken 4 pictures, you could fire off 4 pictures in a little over 1 second .


Some tutorials to get you started. There are a lot of basic concepts that, once you understand, will help your photography.

Good having you here. The K10D is a rock-solid performer at low ISO. Great for learning and moving up in your photographic journey.

Welcome to the forum, vimeto. Try your manual, and then keep snapping away.
